K is for Knot
Andrea Webb Kesavan
K is for Knot: Since recently I’ve been learning to illustrate Celtic knots, I originally started this piece with the intention of filling a "K" with traditional knot work. As I began sketching, however, I found myself developing something more organic and less structured. While looking at images of knots for ideas on how to create the center entanglement, I noticed that a lot of knot pictures had a hand drawn, ink on paper look to them, like something out of an old manual. So I decided to emulate that style in this piece.
